Crazy 2. Bundesliga.

with 4 games to go St. Pauli sitting on the relegation spot ( 16th) with 9 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats and only 7 points behind the 4th of the league.

no matter who is sitting on this spot at the end of the season, that team could break the record of the Chemnitzer FC ( with Ballack) from the season 1995/1996 who have been relegated with record 42 points from 34 games ( 11-9-14). In comparsion to your 46 games league. They would have been relegated from the championship with 57 points

Yes. Just 7 points seperating 4th from 16th is pretty bad ass.
 
So if Frankfurt win, Bayern (who destroyed Bayer 6-2 last night) will meet their future coach in the Pokal final. Interesting. If they win that game 5-0, not many people will be impressed by Kovac and you can't have Bayern playing a final with the assumption that they won't do everything in their power to win. Say what you will about this club but bottlers they are not.

I actually fancy Schalke to take it tonight. Simply put, they're the better side between the two.
 
But not always the better side wins. Schalke made already this experience when they lost 2-3 against HSV.

Quite an effort from Kovac bringing Eintracht into the final for 2 years in a row (although normally they won't have a chance, only if Bayern rests most of their squad for the Champions League final which will be one week later (ui, hopefully I don't have jinxed this now ;) )

Boring match in the 1st half, 2nd a bit better but not much. Some hectic from Schalke players after the disallowed goal.
Had to laugh about this Fernandes guy. Came as a substitute in the 78th minute and 33 seconds later (!) he got the red card and could leave the field again :D
